The obligatory post birthday post

I felt sort of bad for Haley. Her actual birthday day was kind of a bummer. I had to work, and she had to wait a couple days for her present (Heely's), I wrote down what she was getting on a piece of paper and wrapped that up-so she could still feel like she was getting something. Kind of lame I know.
We did have cake for breakfast though. Here was the home version. Really, really sad--I made cupcakes for her class and managed to burn the bottoms, and then this cake! It fell apart when I removed it from the pans. Couldn't seem to get anything right that day. Oh well, it still tasted good. Here's her cake at Chuck E's. It was pretty good, chocolate on chocolate. Can't go wrong with that combo!

Here's the group shot

fun and games (this was a roller coaster ride, I need to check it out next time we go. Jon said it was pretty cool!)

Jason and Daddy having some fun

Haley and one of her best buds.

Of course, we had to get a pic with Chuck E.
(blackmail photos when she's a teenager).

Pre-cake face.......

So, it was a pretty good day. One more little sad fact.
When we went to pay to bill, our hostess informed me they weren't allowed to include the tip in the debit card payment. Of course, I didn't take any cash with me. What to do?
I should have said, "oh sorry, I guess you won't be getting a tip then."
I borrowed some of Haley's birthday cash.
Aren't I a great mom?

Yes, yes you are. Looks like you made up for the lack of birthday-day celebration!

I happen to love birthdays that get spread over a few days. In fact, I think my birthday should last a month and so do my kids.

That's cr@p! You know why they don't take a tip on CCs? Because then they have to claim it and pay tax on it! I know, I did food service for many years (never pulled that stunt though). I bet Haley had a great time, stop beating yourself up. You're a great Mom!!

I have a serious craving for that cake now. Send cake Mikki!
